|Me with a foal I met on holiday in 2010|
“Hello, my name is Claire and I am a book buying addict and readaholic. I do not wish to change this, I love being this way, I am simply admitting my problems.”
In that spirit of confession, I should mention I’m 22, a horse lover, Christian, get on better with animals than people and that I suffer from CFS/ME. I live in the UK and half the time wish I lived in the US (I blame me having lived there as a little kid for a few years for this).
Because of the CFS/ME, I can’t work, so instead I read a lot and that lead to reviews, which lead to book blogging. Very unintentional, but I’ve grown to adore this world I find myself in. I’ve met some fantastic people because of my blog and theirs as well as some lovely readers. I live in a virtual world more than a real one because of how little I can leave the house and they make it that much easier.
I love YA books. I didn’t used to be a big YA fan, in fact around 15/16/17 you’d mostly find me reading adult titles and rarely YA. Now it’s the other way around, I read mostly YA with some adult series thrown in every now and then. I love paranormal YA’s and lately am developing a biiiig love for contemps as well. And dystopia. I rarely read historical, but can very occasionally be convinced to do so. I have a habit of crushing on fictional guys, getting analytical about plots and character motivations, getting ridiculously worked up over various elements/releases/whatever - if its book related, I can crazy over excited about it. I love discussing books with other readers.
When I’m not reading (or blogging, or wasting endless hours online) I’m usually found watching shows like The West Wing and The Unit. And Buffy, Angel, Firefly, NCIS, Gilmore Girls, 24...yeah, I like my TV dvds as well. *shrugs*
